Default [Q] IMEI question

I got an unlocked I727 from Ebay. I flashed stock 4.1.2 and everything works (I'm on T-Mobile- phone + LTE data works fine) except that when you use *#06#, the result is IMEI 0/10. I used QPST to try and see if I could write the IMEI number that was on the sticker. To my surprise, the IMEI number that was pulled by QPST matches the number on the sticker. My question is where is the dialer code *#06# pulling its information from? and can it be modified to match what's on the sticker?

Stock AT&T 4.1.2, baseband I727UCMC1
QPST 2.7 build 402

I agree with vincom and why do you NEED to fix the IMEI? If the phone works fine keep using it. if you feel uneasy about the IMEI issue refund the phone.

otherwise I would say don't touch lol
